Podo Wine Outlet: A new Korean-founded wine shop in Desa Sri Hartamas with personally picked labels
May 20, 2023
Podo Wine Outlet is a friendly sanctuary for wine lovers, with shelves and racks neatly lined up for easy examination. Wine here span the major regions, from Europe's hubs of France, Spain, Italy and Portugal to the USA, Chile and Argentina, plus Australia and New Zealand. The top-selling Korean beer, Terra, and a wide range of soju are also available.
Whether you're into reds or whites, sparkling, rosé, natural or dessert wines, there's a label to love here, with bottles starting from as low as RM60.
A sommelier's certificate (WSET Level 3) illustrates Soo's commitment to wine. She also ensures all of Podo's wines are properly kept - the temperature and humidity inside Podo Wine Outlet is kept consistent, day and night, so that each wine remains at its optimum quality.
A special room is prepared for wine discussions - customers can chat with Soo and her team about their preferences before purchasing. This room will soon also host cosy wine tastings in the near future.
Wines exclusively available in Malaysia at Podo include Spain's Matsu range, made from 100-year-old Tempranillo vines, now prized in South Korea.
Also discover the Casa Rojo range, which is respected by oenophiles in Spain and abroad.
Rounding out Podo's special Spanish selection is the Libalis range, representing spectacular value.
A cooled chamber comprises coveted bottles, including the François Carillon Domaine, honouring the legacy of a wine family's business that dates back to the 16th century:
Francois Carillon Les Perrieres 2016
Francois Carillon Puligny Montrachet 2017
